Always great food!

We visited there three times in one week during our vacation! Our nephew was visiting there for the first time. He loved it so much we went back 2 more times. The only disappointment was my wife had her heart set on the red snapper, but it was sold out upon our arrival each time.

The food was okay. I felt like my stuffed shrimp was extremely small and overpriced. There is a bit of a wait and the service is somewhat slow but attentive. It's not terrible by any means but there are much better places in Destin.

My family and I visited Ft Walton Beach and Destin for vacation and we ate here for lunch. It was a great local restaurant, and they had a great selection of fresh fish. I had a blackened snapper sandwich, and my husband had the blackened swordfish sandwich. They were both delicious and our waiter was great. We sat out on... More

We stopped on our way into destin while we were waiting to check in our room. Great casual dining on the water. Awesome fish dip and the dried shrimp is to die for. Will definitely be going back!!

We ate at the Crab Island Dewey Destin out over the water. Stuffed shrimp with crab meat and wrapped in bacon was delightful. The grilled amberjack was outstanding, also. Also some wonderful fried shrimp. Glad we tried this little restaurant. We actually visited twice on our trip.

Not enough parking first , hostess was rude , we arrived at 830 and they told a couple in front of us 2 hours and then told us who where party of ten it would be 2 hours, there other seafood restaurants close by that are just as good and less challenges.

We went here for lunch while visiting Destin and my boyfriend had been raving about how good it was, and my meal exceeded my expectations. I got the popcorn shrimp and it was easily the BEST popcorn shrimp I've ever had!!! You can tell its hand-breaded and quite large pieces too! He got a fried fish and shrimp basket and... More

We went to Dewey's twice on our trip and absolutely loved it both times. Super fresh seafood, right on the dock. Don't let the setting scare you away. Just throw on some shorts, a t-shirt and flip flops and grab a picnic table under an umbrella. We had popcorn shrimp which was awesome! Fresh, light batter, served with cole slaw... More

We have been going to Dewey Destin Restaurant for many years and we can tell you it's one, if not the best seafood restaurants on the coast. There is always the old standards however new items come on board all the time during the Summer. Price is in the Family range,service very responsive, and the Bay is just a few... More
